Seppeltsfield Grenache 2015

Zero oak, all about primacy of fruit, Joven Grenache if you wish. Looked the goods at Cellar Door, but failed to light me up when back home.

Red berry fruit initially on offer, followed by subtle spice. Sees no oak, it's about purity of expression, no encumbrance. 

More of the same on the palate, segueing to savoury notes, spice and a little freshening acidity. Good medium body, mouthfeel and a fine rub of tannin. 

Does the job, but doesn't quite announce itself. 89  

Tasted on: Weds 18th May, a Flower day
